Classy, lovely back detail
I rented this for an outdoor fall wedding in Yosemite and loved it!
I'm usually between a 4 and a 6 and I wore the 6 -- I couldn't even get the 4 on my arms/shoulders, and it wouldn't have zipped. The 6 was a little more loose in the waist than I would have liked, but it was easy to move in and great for dancing. As other reviewers have noted, the arms are tight, and it was a little tough to raise them up fully while dancing.
The top is conservative but elegant, the length is great (but I'm pretty tall; it may actually be too long or an awkward length for a shorter lady!!), the color really pops and is a nice change from the usual black or navy, and the back has a really gorgeous cut. I didn't love the big gold zipper, but it certainly wasn't a dealbreaker.
Overall, I felt really comfortable and classy in this dress and it fit well. I didn't feel like it was too attention-grabbing or showy, but I still got a ton of compliments. Oh, and pockets!! I would definitely rent this one again.
